London's Docklands has changed beyond all recognition from its major dockyard past as the one time world's largest port. Docklands now represents an area in the East of London including parts of several London boroughs namely Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Newham and Greenwich.
Formed from a number of former dockyards along the north bank of the River Thames, London Docklands also includes the Isle of Dogs. In recent years extensive redevelopment has turned large areas of the Docklands into residential, commercial and industrial space.
Improved transport links via the underground Jubilee Line extension and the Docklands Light Railway has contributed to the development of a centre for modern major business and high class residential living.
Perhaps most famous for Canary Wharf, Britain's tallest building, the Docklands skyline now contains many more impressive skyscrapers forming a major financial centre of London. In addition, the new ExCel Exhibition Centre shows that development of the Docklands area is set to continue at a fast pace. Just across the River Thames is the O2 centre, formerly London's Millenium Dome.
The O2 centre is a large and impressive entertainment district comprising an indoor arena hosting music and sports events, a cinema, a music club and many bars and restaurants. The modern and vibrant Docklands area of London has been designed and built with care, including walkways and green spaces and social entertainment outlets for a new and expanding community. The range of lodging and accommodation in the area reflect the appeal of this constantly developing Docklands community.
Independent hotels and Large hotel chains combine with bed and breakfast and guest house accommodation to suit every visitor to the area. It is the Bed and Breakfast market that we focus on here.
